Hi everyone, thank you for your prompt payments!

A quick update:
I've counted all the orders  for MX and Kailh nutcrackers, but want to count again to make sure it is 100% correct. I will update the checklist and comment again so you know to go and take a look.

An order has been put in for all the extra nutcrackers (beyond 400).

Keep you guys posted.

Hi guys, This is the announcement about whether your or is Batch 1 or Batch 2.

Before the GB began, we started production of 300 mx and 100 kailh nutcracker. But shortly after GB opened all these were ordered (within first 13 hours).

So we prepared Batch 2 for more ppl come and join this GB, because modify switches is quite interesting works, especially for myself too :)

If your row # in the checklist is 205 and before, you are in Batch 1!

If you are row#206-293, and you only ordered  you only order MX, you are also in batch 1.

Kailh batch 1 ends at row# 205.

If you are in 206-293 and you also ordered kailh nutcracker, no worry, we will give you priority and ship out your order as soon as the Kailh nutcrackers are available. These will be called batch 2 priority.

Oh, crap! I've been away for a while and just noticed I missed the GB!  :(

Any chances there'll be extras for sale?

(Just a followup: were you able to confirm whether the MX or Kailh opener could open Outemu switches?)

solid piece of aluminum PLUS shipping is included in that price
shipping alone is probably 30-40% of the price so it make sense actually

Two to three weeks for shipping via EMS (starting Jan 15, 2019)."

Hi guys
Iím Louis from TianYue Lab.

Firstly, a big thanks to everyone for supporting the Nutcracker GB. For batch 1 nutcracker, we had finished all the production and QC.

The original shipping timeline is to start from 15th Dec, but I wanted to  include something extra along with the nutcracker to show my appreciation for your support :p!

I am very sorry, the batch 1 nutcrackers are ready, but because of this, shipping may delay 5-7 days. 

Last but not least, an early Merry Christmas Message from TianYue Lab:3

I totally spaced on this GB. Are there going to be extras available? I'm interested :)

Also curious if there's a video of it in action. I have opened 1000's of switches with precision pliers and it's gotten really old.

Not only did they steal the design, they didn't understand what it even does. The product title says "Switch Puller", which I assumed was a typo until I saw this:

"Whether youíre assembling a keyboard or removing a switch from a hot-swappable keyboard, this switch puller makes it easy."



Can't stop laughing.

Massdrop strikes again.   >:D

If anything, MD just made it more accessible to others who are not included in the mailing list of this GB. So those who can't join before has now the means to acquire the MD "nutcracker".
HOWEVER, this is still plain wrong. Even the anodization colors are a direct copy. Shame.

Has anybody else got their Nutcracker yet? Is it possible that the pictured samples are actually from this GB?

Quick, somebody check the Google sheet and see which buyers purchased at least 1x blue MX, 1x black MX, 1x silver Kailh :P

EDIT: Apparently, TianYueLab and Durgod are working together on this. Massdrop still has no idea what this does though lmao

ilouis_07 said on his discord server that he and Durgod are friends and are doing this Massdrop GB together, MD just didn't properly credit him as the designer.

But they still clearly don't understand what the nutcracker does :)) .

Durgod is our China Parent and i gave permission for them.
BUT i also mentioned the name should be like :
TYL x Durgod Nutcracker
or
TianYueLab x Durgod switch opener

HOWEVER our studio name have been REMOVED (by mistake? IDK).
Feels sad:(

We will ship batch 1 and batch 2 orders first, make sure they all received their orders. Then i can sell all the extra pieces(back up for defects nutcracker).
Be fair to all the existing buyers and find the most comfortable ways for everyone, i know many ppl missed the GB.
